How to plan
a meal while on the Candida Diet:
1) Choose a protein (meat, chicken, fish, tuna, eggs)
2) Add as many allowed vegetables as you wish with butter &
salt for flavoring. To make salad dressing, combine olive or canola
oil with fresh lemon juice and desired spices.
3) Add one serving of fruit
4) Add nuts, avocados, and other sources of fat, as desired
To break the
diet, (no sooner than on the 15th day) add one "off-limits"
food only. Start with the unallowed vegetables. Next add additional
fresh, unsweetened fruits. Then add dairy products. Add only one
new item every three days. Three days later add another. By adding
slowly, you can determine which foods you must still stay away
from (if your symptoms return). Sugar, vinegar, and yeast products
should be the last items you add.
